THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
GOD LONGS TO PROTECT AND DEFEND US AND GIVE US HIS STRENGTH
Where do you take refuge when the storms of LIFE come? Where do you go for COMFORT and SAFETY? Some people find it easy to turn to their friends, their job, or even a bowl of ice cream. There’s nothing wrong with any of those things, but God wants us to turn to HIM first. He wants us to take REFUGE in Him. He longs to PROTECT us, DEFEND us and give us His STRENGTH. We serve a GOOD God, and when we take refuge in HIM, He will pour out His abundant BLESSING in our lives.
Taste and see that the Lord is GOOD, and His PROMISES are good. When you turn to God, the Bible PROMISES that you will find rest and refuge for your SOUL. No matter what you may be facing today, come to the Father. He will give you His PEACE and STRENGTH as you take REFUGE in Him.
“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!”
(Psalm 34:8, ESV)
